British Firework Championships

The British Firework Championships or National Firework Championships is an annual competition held in Plymouth, Devon, England, every August where judges review fireworks displays from professional fireworks companies and select the best examples.

It is watched by more than 200,000 people.[1]


The competition was first held in 1997. Competitors set up their displays on the Mount Batten Breakwater which is closed to the public for the duration of the competition. The competition rules place restrictions on budget, duration and amount of ordinace that can be used for each display.

As part of the event's tenth anniversary in 2006, eight prior winners were invited to take part in a Champion of Champions competition. A lecturer from the University of Plymouth, Roy Lowry, attempted to break the world record of the most amount of rockets fired simultaneously with 55,000.[2]

The 2014 event was a 'Champion of Champions' with the six previous winners being invited. This was postponed from 2012.[3]
